About me

I am a professionally trained BACP Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor.  This means I use different theoretical models to suit each individual, including Person Centred, Existential and Psychodynamic methods, along with exploration of family history and patterns.

I have a specialist interest and experience working with women and women's issues. I understand the pressures and influences on women today and how opening up and talking about problems can be very difficult. There is a growing number of women today feeling overwhelmed by external pressures and the need to meet the expectations of others and the expectations they have placed on themselves.

I work with women who are experiencing low mood, feelings of anxiety and depression, stress, feeling totally overwhelmed by life, low self-esteem along with problems in relationships. I also work with grief and bereavement and have experience working in cancer care. 

We will focus on how having a healthy relationship with yourself will enable you to have healthy relationships with others.  We will look at how self-love and self-care can lead to establishing healthy boundaries both in the workplace and at home.  We will work toward you fulfilling your potential and becoming more content with your life.

My aim is to provide a safe space for you to feel heard and understood in a non-judgemental way.

Get To Know Me

A Half Hour Session - Giving us the opportunity to discover whether working together feels right for you.  At the end of the session there is no obligation for you to commit to working together, it is important that you feel comfortable

These sessions are charged at £10.00

Working Together

A 50 Minute Session - I schedule an hour for each client, as I find this helps to allow a few minutes either side to settle in and wrap-up sessions
